In a modified format, it was announced today that the popular Festival of the Lion King will be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Walt Disney World will begin bringing back singers, dancers, and more cast members from the show at the Harambe Theatre.
The new show starting this summer will have adjustments to the stage, backstage, and will have updates to the choreography to allow for appropriate physical distancing. There will also be changes in how the audience is seated which will be in line with other theater-based experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort.
There will be amazing visual and vocal performances of “Circle of Life“, “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” and you will witness an incredible fire knife performance during “Be Prepared”. It’s going to be an amazing celebration! Go ahead and plan on visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom this summer to sing along with Simba and his friends!
